NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 23, 2022–
Signature Bank (Nasdaq: SBNY), a New York-based, full-service commercial bank, announced today it appeared on Forbes’ Blockchain 50 List 2022, which tracks the usage of blockchain technologies around the globe. Signature Bank is one of only seven companies (and one of two banks) to be included on the list every year since the inaugural ranking appeared in Forbes in 2019. In this year’s recently released list, Forbes dubbed these companies the “ Magnificent Seven.”
Signature Bank was the first FDIC-insured bank (along with its technology partner, Tassat) to launch a blockchain-based digital payments platform. Its Signet™ solution allows the Bank’s commercial clients to make real-time payments in U.S. dollars, 24/7/365 and was also the first to be approved for use by the NYS Department of Financial Services.
“We were at the forefront of banking technology when we began serving clients in the digital assets arena in 2018 and then when we launched Signet in 2019. We continue to advance and incorporate technology into our commercial banking services offering to help enhance our clients’ businesses. It is our foresight about how technology would influence banking along with advancements we’ve made and our pioneering position that has continually been captured by Forbes since it introduced its Blockchain 50 list,” said Signature Bank President and Chief Executive Officer Joseph J. DePaolo.

This press release and oral statements made from time to time by our representatives contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You should not place undue reliance on those statements because they are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties relating to our operations and business environment, all of which are difficult to predict and may be beyond our control. Forward-looking statements include information concerning our expectations regarding future results, interest rates and the interest rate environment, loan and deposit growth, loan performance, operations, new private client teams and other hires, new office openings, business strategy and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on each of the foregoing and on our business overall. Forward-looking statements often include words such as “may,” “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “potential,” “opportunity,” “could,” “project,” “seek,” “target”, “goal”, “should,” “will,” “would,” “plan,” “estimate” or other similar expressions. As you consider forward-looking statements, you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of performance or results. They involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements and can change as a result of many possible events or factors, not all of which are known to us or in our control. These factors include but are not limited to: (i) prevailing economic conditions; (ii) changes in interest rates, loan demand, real estate values and competition, any of which can materially affect origination levels and gain on sale results in our business, as well as other aspects of our financial performance, including earnings on interest-bearing assets; (iii) the level of defaults, losses and prepayments on loans made by us, whether held in portfolio or sold in the whole loan secondary markets, which can materially affect charge-off levels and required credit loss reserve levels; (iv) changes in monetary and fiscal policies of the U.S. Government, including policies of the U.S. Treasury and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System; (v) changes in the banking and other financial services regulatory environment, (vi) our ability to maintain the continuity, integrity, security and safety of our operations and (vii) competition for qualified personnel and desirable office locations. All of these factors are subject to additional uncertainty in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is having an unprecedented impact on all aspects of our operations, the financial services industry and the economy as a whole. Additional risks are described in our quarterly and annual reports filed with the FDIC. Although we believe that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, beliefs and expectations, if a change occurs or our beliefs, assumptions and expectations were incorrect, our business, financial condition, liquidity or results of operations may vary materially from those expressed in our forward-looking statements. You should keep in mind that any forward-looking statements made by Signature Bank speak only as of the date on which they were made. New risks and uncertainties come up from time to time, and we cannot predict these events or how they may affect the Bank.
